We gave it a B+

Once an import-only collectible, this raunchy 1978 punk artifact attacks sex roles, pretension, and synthetic materials with catchy tunes and a big dose of irony. While Poly Styrene giddily vents songs like ”Oh Bondage Up Yours!” her band squonks out noisy Britpunk, complete with saxophone. Germfree Adolescents is a Day-Glo-spattered milestone of abrasive, perceptive fun.
